      Yea, what @Dylan Windwalker said!

      It's a shame that Derby has never gotten the attention it deserves because it really is fun - no, really, it is! But more than just a shame that people really don't understand derby - what has is most frustrating about derby is that KI has had so many opportunities to make racing pets relevant but completely ignored derby over, and over and over.

      I've been posting my ideas for Derby going back to 2011 (!!!) - the last one back in 2019 - but here are just super easy things they could do if they wanted to that would bring Derby "back to the mainstream".

      1. Add 1 derby race to the Pet Promenade. Right now there are a few "tasks" in the Pet Promenade that cost gold or resources - you get points for feeding pets snacks (using resources) and points for hatching a pet (using gold). What about replacing one of those with 1 Practice Derby race? People used to complain that it takes forever to get a RANKED match, but now it's rare to see anyone doing PRACTICE races. Giving players an incentive to do a race will
      A> Give players a chance to try racing and if even 1% of those people get involved in derby regularly, WIN!
      B> Add activity back to the practice Derby. More people doing practice, more chances for people to race. WIN!

      2. Increase the Rewards for doing Derby. So obvious. Right now it's almost insulting that for winning a ranked race you get 4 tickets when Arena PvP awards the LOSERS more. It's a sad statement that I've won more tickets in a week of doing Arena Tournaments than a life time (almost 2000) derby races. Especially with Participation Trophies needed to craft things players must jump into the Arena because it would take YEARS and YEARS to get enough tickets from Derby. So, why not 25 tickets, or 30, or 50 for a win?

      3. The last suggestion is almost TOO obvious - let players train their pets with PRACTICE Derby. I have no idea why KI thought feeding your pet double in RANKED was useful because it's madness to race a pet that still needs training. But in PRACTICE...too obvious.

      And there are TONS more idea, including my BRILLIANT idea of a Derby House called "Derby Downs", but at this point, ANY attention would be appreciated.

      Pretty please, KI?

      Oh, and if anyone wants to make a difference and join some races here on Central....

      Re: Bring back Derby

      Yes! With all the additions to the game, why has pet derby not been given its due attention? Why aren't the rewards better? Honestly, I would like to try it, but the lack of incentive just makes it seem like a task that is not worth taking on. Lately, it feels like KI has really amped up it's efforts to separate players from their money. I appreciate that KI is a business, and needs to be profitable, but can we focus on giving back to the players a bit? Give us better derby, and try not to find a way to exploit it to increase profits.

      Re: Bring back Derby

      Its somewhat strange from time to time i log in here on Central and in the game and check on derby, and even with seeing a lot of new players play wizard and is more lively than it used to be 3 or 4 years ago=even with all that no new people took to doing derby which is just sad. Ki just failed to put something in place for people to have incentive to explore pet derby. Its such a fun part of the game but i think most people wouldn't know how fun it actually is due to that lack of that attraction/incentive needed. So ki please do some updates for pet derby.

      It'll take a while before Derby is ever going to be updated. The company is still trying to work out 5th Age PvP, which is probably going to be the Spring or Summer updates of next year, whichever update it's not I am fairly doubtful that derby is in their best interests quite simply because it doesn't make the company a lot of money, no matter how fun/engaging it is (which is a major reason derby has been thrown under the bus for several years now). I don't think even if there was an immense calling or desire from the fan base for derby to be revitalized, that it will capture the best interests of Ki. It will have to be the case that 5th Age PvP is updated before anything Derby is updated, so if 5th Age PvP is gonna be Summer 2022 update, then Fall 2022 update will likely be the next world or Lemuria Part 2 (if this is the case similarly the Khrysalis and Empyrea). Derby wouldn't be updated until 2023 and who knows what the game would be like by then...

      Much like this thread, Derby has definitely gone silent. Not sure why all the Central "regulars" decided to take a break from Derby all at the same time but tournaments here on Central has been as non existent as racing in game. ACK!

      Due to the lack of enthusiasm for Derby, unfortunately there wasn't an Anniversary tournament () OR the Holloween tournament (). And now we have another Holiday coming up and I'm trying to decide whether there's any point in doing something for Derby.

      Whatcha say, Central - is there enough interest out there to do a Holiday themed Derby tournament?

      Perhaps if these tournaments fill, I'll have my answer...

      Unfortunately I am not a Derby person (I hate making pets for anything lol), but I'd love to see one happen

      I don't like it when people call things impossible, because it usually isn't.

      Seriously though, I was just wondering do they have spectators in the Derby like PvP? If not, they should so people will get a chance to appreciate it better.
